Travvy AwardsThe Bahamas has been nominated for four Travvy Awards for 2017.

The land of sun, sand and sea was nominated for Best Gaming Destination (International), Best Honeymoon Destination (Caribbean/ Bahamas), Best Wedding Destination (Caribbean/ Bahamas), and Best Tourism Board (Caribbean/ Bahamas).

The nominations are a recognition of the hard work of thousands of professionals in the country.


Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchcombe said the nominations are symbolic of the level of excellence in the Bahamian tourism product.

“It’s an honor for The Bahamas to be recognized in such a positive way with these nominations, particularly by those who visit our shores and know us best, that is our travel agents and guests,” he said.

“These nominations are representative of the tireless work Bahamians in the hospitality industry are engaged in every day. I think of the housekeepers, the bellmen, the people who go the extra mile to put a smile on a visitor’s face. The people in our country who put the needs of others before their own. I think that is what this speaks to.

“It also speaks to the excellence that we have here in The Bahamas. I think it is an honor.”

The nominations come on the heels of several successful promotional events including the 16 island, 16 weddings, one priceless day event. The tour saw several tourists married throughout the country on picturesque and sandy beaches.

The Caribbean Export Development Agency has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Latin Chamber of Commerce of the USA to help strengthen cooperation between the US based entities and the member states of Caribbean Export which includes CARIFORUM countries.

Prime Minister Perry Christie has said that there will be significant announcements regarding the economy in the Budget Communication to be delivered in the House of Assembly later this week. Watch excerpts from a speech by Christie here.
